Hi.

My 14 inch blue campanula has bloomed.
Do they keep on blooming if I cut them back?
If so, how far back do I cut them?
Will they bloom on and off all summer if I cut them back?
( like geraniums?)

Please help. Thanks, Dorian

Campanulas will bloom for quite a long time if you simply pinch off individual dead flowers. Leave the flowering stem alone until no more flowers appear. When this happens, prune the flower stem down to the folage on the remainder of the plant. Enjoy!
